Justin Eboigbe, Edge, Alabama - Round 4, pick No. 116

The Jaguars added Trevis Gipson in free agency to bolster their pass rush after losing K'Lavon Chaisson and Dawuane Smoot. Gipson is coming off an underwhelming season but has previously shown the ability to get after the quarterback. That said, it wouldn't hurt the Jags to add another pass rusher in the draft. If they do it in the fourth round, Alabama's Justin Eboigbe would be a solid pick.

At 6'4 and 290 pounds, Eboigbe has the traits to play defensive end in the NFL. However, his get-off is less-than-ideal and his hand usage needs plenty of work. Nevertheless, he could be an enticing developmental prospect with the tools to eventually become a solid rotational piece.

Tyler Davis, DL, Clemson - Round 6, pick No. 212

The interior defensive line is no longer a pressing need for the Jags after signing Arik Armstead. However, that shouldn't stop them from adding depth in the later rounds of the draft. Davis comes with injury red flags and his short arms may limit his impact in the NFL. The other side of the coin is that he's a serviceable run defender who has flashed pass-rush potential.

If Davis manages to stay healthy, he could compete for playing time in Jacksonville's defensive front rotation as a rookie.

Julian Pearl, OT, Illinois - Round 7, pick No. 236

Walker Little and Cam Robinson are set to become free agents in 2025. One of them could be back, but it would be a good idea to add depth at offensive tackle. Having addressed other positions in early rounds, the Jaguars would be in a position to take a developmental swing tackle in Round 7.

Julian Pearl made 24 starts at left tackle for Illinois the past two years. He's got ideal size and arm length to play in the NFL but he'll need to gain strength and work on his overall technique if he wants to compete for a roster spot.
